Did they ask for photos?
Or any other verification of exclusive work from home space?
Nope, just a letter from my employer, stating I'm working from home. I submitted my house floorplan and indicated where my office was.

I filed on Tuesday night, tax money came through this morning.

For some stupid reason, it wouldn't generate the electronic forms on Chrome but it worked perfectly fine on Firefox.

Yes on the photos. Employer letter + house plan/layout also. All expenses besides internet and cellphone were accepted. (Both of these I've come to learn are not claimable by salaried employees).

SoA says my refund is tomorrow.

Whoop, my SOA shows payment on the 7th of August.
Me too. Balance is R0 and refunds a nice welcome sum
when did you receive completion letter and when did you file?
Timeline for anyone that cares:
Filed: 02/07/21
Documents for Review (requested): 02/07/21
Documents Submitted: 02/07/2021

*insert some MyBB chatter that App uploads trigger the process quicker*

Additional documents filed: 07/07/21 via App (Consultant at one point said the 21 days starts from the date of the last submission)
Request for Support Documents: 23/07/21 (photos + house layout)
Documents for Review: 23/07/21 (submitted same files for it. Looked like a bug asking for "third time")
Completion: 04 August 2021 with a whopping R20K less.

I suspect by tomorrow, my account will be smiling.

I only claimed internet, and it was approved. The house we are in is part of my wife's job, so no rent on our side.
I submitted invoices for the internet, and letter from employer. Approved.

What expenses were successful?

Only the apportioned expenses. All I will say is: I know I was taking chances with my cellphone and internet being my biggest expenses.

However, there are reasons why I should never have even tried to claim them.

Is security your armed response?
And insurance - household contents or building?

Submitted yesterday.

Claimed out of pocket medical expenses of a whopping R46k (ivf which btw failed), another R10k that was on the medical aid rejections, submitted profits on shares of about R44k, showed a small profit, on rental property and claimed for disability deduction (itr-dd form)

Final assessment shows I'm owed a whopping R36k. I'm flagged for audit but I'm not too worried as I did submit all the docs to support my claim

It was ~R3600 in annual ADT fees, R3000 in alarm installation fees + R7900 Cameras (R6k procurement + consumables + electrician fee).

Insurance is household contents @ R270 pm.
